Duane Redux

One wonders why the doctor hasn’t ordered better loss prevention procedures at area Duane Reade stores. At 9 p.m. on Dec. 18, a man in his 20s entered the Duane Reade at 2148 Broadway and made off with Prevacid and other medicines valued at $1,700.

Later that month, a 52-year-old man was arrested on grand larceny charges when he tried to steal quantities of Mucinex, Tylenol and other drugs valued at $1,400 from the Duane Reade at 1889 Broadway on the morning of Dec. 27.

Secret Rendezvous

Three men took an illegal interest in ladies’ luxury lingerie. At 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 27, three men entered the Victoria’s Secret store at 2333 Broadway and made off with $1,700 worth of intimate apparel. Police investigating.

Grinch Pinch

At 4 p.m. on Christmas Day, a woman was watching a movie in the Loews Lincoln Square 13 theater at 1998 Broadway when she discovered that her purse had been opened, and her wallet and cell phone were missing along with her credit cards. The stolen cell was an iPhone 6 valued at $680.

Patagone-ia

Apparently two shoplifters are preparing for some outdoor adventures (including perhaps fleeing from the authorities). At 4 p.m. on Dec. 20, two men entered the Patagonia store at 426 Columbus Ave. and took off with $5,700 worth of sporting goods and apparel.
